Plans for 13 more temples and the renovation of the Provo Utah Temple were announced by President Russell M. Nelson on Sunday, Oct. 3, at the end of the 191st Semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

President Nelson has now announced 83 new temples in the nearly four years he has served as president of the church.

Temples play a central role in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

They are used for the faith’s highest and most sacred ordinances, such as marriage and making covenants with God to be more like Jesus Christ. Ordinances for the deceased are also performed in temples, including baptisms for the dead.

The Church of Jesus Christ now has 265 temples announced, under construction or in operation.

New temples are typically announced at the church’s general conferences, held semiannually in April and October.

The church closed all temples worldwide on March 25, 2020, to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

For more information on Latter-day Saint temples, see the church’s official website.
